Potstickers are Chinese dumplings filled with ground meat and veggies, pan-fried, steamed and served with potsticker sauce. Easy and the best homemade potsticker recipe!


Potstickers Wrapper (Make From Scratch) – 2 cups all-purpose flour – 1/2 cup water – 1 pack potsticker wrapper Potsticker Sauce: – 2 tablespoons chinese black vinegar – 1 tablespoon soy sauce – 1 teaspoon chili oil – 1/2 teaspoon white sesame seeds Potstickers Filling: – 12 oz. (340 g) ground pork – 1 leave Napa cabbage (1/2 cup), finely sliced – 1 tablespoon chopped scallion – 3 dashes ground white pepper – 1 teaspoon Shaoxing wine – 1 teaspoon sesame oil – 1/2 teaspoon salt – 1-inch piece ginger, peeled and grated – 1 1/2 tablespoons vegetable oil – 1/2 cup water

Step 1

Potsticker Wrappers. Mix the flour with water and knead it for about 20-25 minutes or until the dough becomes soft.

Step 2

Separate the dough into two equal portions and roll them into cylinders (about 1-inch in diameter). Cover them with a wet towel and set aside. To make the wrapper, cut the dough into 1/4-inch length dough balls.

Step 3

Use a rolling pin to flatten it until it becomes a round wrapper, about 3 inch in diameter. Repeat the same until all dough balls are used up. (You may use a pack of store-bought potsticker wrappers.)

Step 4

 Potsticker Sauce. Combine all the ingredients in a small bowl. Stir to mix well. Set aside.

Step 5

Potsticker Filling. Combine the ground pork, Napa cabbage, scallions, white pepper, wine, sesame oil, salt and ginger together. Stir to mix well. Set aside.

Step 6

To make potstickers, place a small spoonful of the filling in the center of the wrapper. Dab a little water with your finger and circle around the edge of the skin. Fold and pleat the potsticker, about 5 pleats. Repeat the same until all ingredients are used up.

Step 7

 To pan fry the potstickers, add vegetable oil to a frying pan, non-stick preferred. Turn on medium heat. Arrange the dumplings and pan fry the potstickers until the bottoms turn golden brown and become crispy. Add the water and cover the pan with its lid immediately.

Step 8

 Steam and cook the potstickers until the water has evaporated. Turn the heat to low and cook the potstickers for a minute or so, dish out and serve hot with Potstickers dipping sauce.
